We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews but did not find the staff near as welcoming as others. We asked for 2 sirloin steaks one with pepper sauce. They were very nice but we didnt notice ant difference between the 2, but when we went to pay the bill we noted that one of the steaks was a fillet therefore 6euros dearer. It was not our mistake and was about to say that we would split the difference of the price when the male cook came out and became very nasty. He was abusive and threw a tantrum practically throwing the bill instructing one of the waiters to sort it out and he stomped past us back to the kitchen
We were embarrassed and angry and will not be returning here againif that is the way paying customers are treated.

We have been going to John's and Joan's restaurants for a while and they have never disappointed. We have always left the place with a yearning to return as soon as we come back to the Island. In summer the terrace is absolutely perfect to sample the simple but exquisite dishes that John produces every single time we get there. It is also very good value for money and I cannot recommend it enough. Must give it a try and if you are a big group book in advance with preferences of what you might like.
